Michael- Steve H suggested this restaurant, Haymaker, on West 29th St. Looks like it will fill the bill of not being too pricey, more a comfort food place. I'm not sure I even want to pick a place- would you like to? But please at least look at Haymaker and let's consider it.

Looks decent. Nice spread of Bourbons.

I'm easy...as long as the food, drinks and atmosphere are fantastic.

Also, we gotta make sure any of these places can accommodate our size group...that'll be the deciding factor.

I will give Haymaker a call Monday and get a feel of how they can seat say a group of around 12-15. I'll report back afterwards.

I just called Haymaker on 29th Street and was told that they have room for large parties such as ours. For more than ten people, I would have to email the manager to make arrangements. And the woman said if one or two extra show up, it will be no problem accommodating everyone. That is all good news.

Before I make a reservation, I'd like to wait at least a day to see if we have any other suggestions for a venue. I will also do a head count and list everyone who so far has committed. If you don't see your name on the list and want to come, just post on this thread and I will add it (no PM's or emails, please, let's keep everything in one place).

There is a link to Haymaker at post #101. It looks friendly and casual, and not super pricey. I will still listen to others. Now is the time as we should have a reservation locked in over the next couple of days.

Okay, no suggestions to counter Haymaker. So we are now confirmed for June 14, and I am going to choose Haymaker as our restaurant. It will be a first for all of us, but what is the worst that can happen? I would say let's meet for drinks at 6:00, and we can set a 6:30 time for a sit down dinner.

Now in order to make a reservation, we need a fairly accurate headcount. Again, if we are off by a couple it won't matter, but I think it's fair to ask people for a commitment.

Here is what we have so far for sure:

Judy and Barry S.
Charlotte and Ted Z.
Michael S
Steve H
Pete U
Jason S
Jon W
Judson H
Carl P
Keith T

Now we have a few, such as Jamie B and Judson H, who committed to our first date but haven't done so for the 14th. If you are still in please post. I received to emails, from Aaron and Keith T., and I have a friend Michael O who reads the board but doesn't post but may join us. Also Scott R was a maybe. It would be a great help to let me know for sure.

So we have 10 commits but too many maybes to make the reservation. Let's say everyone who still wants to come to please post by 3:00 PM tomorrow, and then I will contact the restaurant. Everyone is welcome so all you have to do is post and you're in. And if I accidentally missed your name please let me know. Thanks all!

Just a reminder that I will be contacting the restaurant later this afternoon to make a reservation. If you want to join us and your name does not appear on the list at post #106, now is the time to let me know. Again, everyone is welcome. Don't be shy.
